In May 2018, Adam Kornowski, a fourth grader at Lakeside Elementary School in Minnesota, took the stage at a local talent contest, little knowing he’d suddenly become an internet celebrity and his act would go viral with millions of views online.
The 10-year-old, who has been playing the piano since the age of five, chose to perform John Lennon’s “Imagine.” Only one of the finest tunes ever written.
It’s incredible how a song can still have such an emotional effect after so many years. And Adam, the young man, did it proud.
Michelle, his ecstatic mother said on Facebook that there wasn’t a single parent in the room who didn’t cry by the end. He received a standing ovation, and the applause lasted indefinitely! A woman approached her and said she would buy it on iTunes if she got it out there!! She like his bow at the end…so courteous.
Adam had his all school talent show today. He did Imagine. There wasn’t a parent in the room with a dry eye by the end. He got a standing ovation and the applause lasted forever!! A woman stopped me to tell me that she would buy it on iTunes if I put it out there!! I love his bow at the end…so polite!Posted by Michelle Cavarnos Kornowski on Thursday, 24 May 2018
